As a kid, I looked up to superheroes and always wanted to become one. I was the kid with tons of comic books and action figures that watched every superhero movie more than once. Fast forward two decades and not much has changed minus the action figures and that I realized heroes don’t have to wear capes.
My family is originally from Peru, where poverty is rampant, the education system was poorly established, and resources for those in need were scarce. Thanks to the efforts and sacrifices of my parents, my sisters and I were able to establish a good life in the United States. As a result, I have always worked hard to help others in any way I can, either through donations, volunteer work, or even my own career.
I graduated from Seton Hall University in 2018 with a B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy. Additionally, I received a Juris Doctorate from Cornell Law School in 2021 and am licensed to practice in New York with a pending admission to New Jersey. Currently I serve as an Assistant Prosecutor for Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office to protect my community.
I firmly believe in the goals and efforts of this organization and I hope that you the reader will come to believe in us as well. All children deserve to live a good life with clean clothes and full stomachs.
